Predictive Analytics Applied – An Online Introduction

June 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - June 22, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Business metrics do a great job summarizing the past. But if you want to predict how customers will respond in the future, there is one place to turn — predictive analytics. By learning from your abundant historical data, predictive analytics delivers something beyond standard business reports and sales forecasts: actionable predictions for each customer. These predictions encompass all channels, both online and off, foreseeing which customers will buy, click, respond, convert or cancel. If you predict it, you own it.

The customer predictions generated by predictive analytics deliver more relevant content to each customer, improving response rates, click rates, buying behavior, retention and overall profit. For online applications such as e-marketing and customer care recommendations, predictive analytics acts in real-time, dynamically selecting the ad, web content or cross-sell product each visitor is most likely to click on or respond to.

Predictive Analytics Applied is a self-paced online course instructed by the founder of Predictive Analytics World that covers the following topics:

Applications: Business, marketing and web problems solved with predictive analytics. The many ways its predictions can be used to drive various business decisions.
Core Technology: How a predictive model works and how it’s created. What a predictive model looks like under the cover. What data is required for predictive modeling.
Evaluation: How well a predictive model works and how much revenue it generates
Management: Project leadership and business process for predictive analytics; the organizational challenges and how to overcome them.
Illustrations: Live demos and detailed case studies
Hands-on: “Get your hands dirty” with a revealing Excel-based exercise, bringing a predictive model to life and seeing it improve before your eyes.
